Liu Peng, a researcher at a bio-tech company, was honored a "Leading Highly Skilled Talent" for his long-term devotion to carrying forward the "spirit of craftsmen", specifically including determination, patience and perseverance to achieve perfection.
Liu worked for Cyrus Tang Hematology Center at Soochow University (SU) for two years after he graduated from College of Life Sciences at SU in 2008. Then he joined the bio-tech company and started his research into new drugs, especially focusing on low-cost and high-effect protein drugs and related technologies.
As a research team leader and the first prize winner in biochemical pharmaceutical engineering at the 8th SIP Highly Skilled Talents' Competition, Liu believes that highly skilled talents play an important role in a country's core competitiveness and that the leading talents shoulder the responsibility to enhance this role.
"We should grow up together with our colleagues and our peers to drive a fast industrial development with our ever-improving expertise," he said.
